  • 15-20 hours if I'm lucky. 3-4 days a week.

    I really need a new job! I've been applying everywhere. I need to save more for a car.

  • I'm at university, so it's hard to put my schedule into exact numbers. It's much more irregular than having a job. Usually the beginning of a new semester is a pretty relaxed time because there's not much going on. The closer you get towards the end of the semester, the tougher and more stressful it becomes. During summers and winters we have semester break but usually I have to write papers or study for exams during that time. When I have to write a paper, I'm usually very absorbed. For example I had to submit a paper on Monday and so, for the last three weeks or so, I was VERY absorbed with that. I hardly ever went outside the house and when the deadline came near, I sometimes worked through the whole night and didn't even go to bed. That kinda thing can be pretty tough. But now I'm done with the paper and I literally don't have to do anything for the next week :-). Generally speaking, studying at university is harder for me than for others because I'm almost blind. This means that I have to give 150% of passion and determination in many aspects and I have to work longer and harder for the same results as others. But I like my two majors and that's the most important thing I believe.

    As for working, we have a 40-hour week in Switzerland. This means that if you're employed at a 100%-job, you work 8.5 hours a day, 5 days a week. There are 5 weeks of paid vacation for every employee under the age of 50 in Switzerland. Over the age of 50, you get 6 weeks paid vacation.
    In my personal case, I am studying to become a high school teacher. It's kinda different than in the US because being a high school teacher is not considered a lousy job here. It's actually quite the opposite. High schools generally have a high level because they're selective. Not everyone can attend them (the level is comparable to the first 2 years of college in America). If you want to become a high school teacher, you need to have a Master's degree in at least one subject and after that, you have to get an additional Master's degree in pedagogy (another 2 years). Many high school teachers in Switzerland also get a PhD and lecture at a university if they feel like doing a bit of both. So the requirements to become a high school teacher are very high but it's a well respected job and the government pays you a very good salary. Oh, and you get 13 weeks of vacation, who doesn't like that :-).

  • Ehh, I don't have a job so for me, working is technically just attending lectures. I only have 9 hours of lectures spread across my week though obviously I have to do quite a bit of reading and stuff outside of lectures but nothing comparable to an actual job.

  • Depends on the week, but it's usually no less than 35 hours, 5 days a week. Sometimes if someone is on vacation or we've made enough sales, I'll get lucky and have 38 hours, 5 days a week.

    Still definitely not enough at only $10/hr though, as far as being effective with saving up money to move out, etc.

    • Even overtime at $10 isn't shit, that blows.

    • Show All
    • @TonyRyan Yeah, I'm tryin' to get a part-time job. But I can't find many part-time jobs at $10/hr, and that's the only way I'll see it worth it... is to work two part time jobs if I'm paid $10/hr at both jobs.

    • That's the route to take, I used to work security at Wal-Mart at $10.50 and even with overtime I was constantly broke.

  • Maybe I work on saturdays some odd week days really not all that much. I work more in the summer

  • 45 hours or so in one of my jobs, I am salaried so I don't keep track. As for my company (the company I own) I probably put in an additional 10 hours or so, and for the design company I am on the board for an additional 2 or 3 hours. so total about 58 or so.

    • hard working man wow

    • I'm trying to build a future rather then just work to live. Most of my work for the board, and my own company are unpaid, with the hopes of building equity and a future. I would like to retire within the next 5 years or so, and live on my investments, but in order to invest you must either invest time or money (as I do not have the money, I invest time)

  • I have two jobs although one of them is a bit different, my work hours aren't preplanned from the get-go, but rather along the way, as I'm needed there.

  • It depends on what's going on. I have my own consulting company, so I could work 70-80 hours one week and zero the next. As long as I average 10-12 billable hours a week, the bills are paid.
